Library Research Guides are a popular tool for connecting students and faculty with research materials. This presentation will explain how we created a customized set of "new item" RSS feeds from Aleph and subsequently embedded those feeds into subject librarians' Research Guide pages. I will review the process and steps for creating the RSS feeds using the SQL-to-XML method and explain the mechanics behind how the feeds work. Then I will show a couple different examples of how our subject librarians have opted to display the RSS feeds in their LibGuide webpages. Finally, I will explain how we integrated a deep link to our Primo instance with the "dlSearch.do" syntax as part of the feed so that users can click on an item and be taken immediately to the record in Primo.
